Loved the tour. Very ornate and well decorated. View from patio is spectacular. Layout of home perfect for their lifestylle. Many amenities we have now so it was hard to believe the home built in the 1920's was so well equipped

There are several tours of the mansion, take them all. You can just feel how John & Mable Ringling felt while living and entertaining some of America's titans of the time. Plan on speniding 2+ hours in and around the mansion alone.

Amazing house! We were on two of the floors during this tour. There is another tour offered that is a little more expansive. The furnishings are beautiful as is the art work. I can only imagine the fantastic parties that must have been held here....More

The Ringling museum is accessible but the mansion is not. The grounds around are wheelchair accessible & the museum probably has chairs to rent. Call ahead!
